Abstract: This is the last in a sequence of papers that redoes the theory of recursion in finite types. A key feature of the theory is that a computation can succeed (or finish) even if some of its subcomputations do not, if these turn out to be irrelevant to the total computation. I give a detailed description of computations involving oracles for type functionals. The computation may be viewed formally as a transfinite sequence of symbolic expressions, but I also describe a semantics in which each expression is given a concrete realization.
